When someone truly loves their results, it validates my professional passion and pursuit of excellence.


At Illuminate Plastic Surgery, the warm, welcoming setting isn’t manufactured. Dr. David Boudreault began his practice with his wife, nurse practitioner Molly Boudreault. “We are proud to have created a safe, familyoriented environment for patients to explore surgical and nonsurgical procedures for the face, breast and body,” he says. “Through education and trust, our patients feel empowered to consider the latest breakthrough technologies.” Using a variety of simulation tools, Dr. Boudreault is able to take his patients through their entire aesthetic journey to help them develop realistic expectations. “I’m known for providing natural-looking results that make my patients happy,” adds the doctor. “Whether it’s Botox Cosmetic or a breast enhancement, I want my patients to know I am thinking about them and want the best results. At Illuminate, our goal is to help you shine brighter.”

A Minute With

  1. What is your surgical niche?
    Body contouring, whether it’s an isolated breast surgery or a fullbody contouring with fat transfer
  2. What trend do you hope becomes popular?
    Nonsurgical skin rejuvenation; a person’s face is the only part of the body that is never hidden. With all of the new technologies available, including those with little-to-no downtime, a person can enhance overall skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, tighten skin and minimize dark spots. Add to that a regimen of medical-grade skin care and a person can achieve youthful, healthy skin without surgery
  3. Why do you place a strong emphasis on body contouring?
    Body contouring is the most powerful and long-lasting way to shape bodies. If I was a baker, I would say that body contouring is the cake, while other treatments are the frosting on top
  4. Describe your doctor/patient relationship dynamic.
    I want patients to know that I’m not only listening to them; I am also focused on ‘seeing’ their concern.
  5. What new services are you excited to offer?
    We continue to introduce new, safe and innovative services. Currently, we are working on a multifaceted approach to help our patients with melasma. Through a combination of skin lighteners, lasers and peels, we strive to partner with our patients to tackle this difficult problem and achieve the even skin tone they desire. We have found that taking a combination approach to treating this condition is most effective
  6. What are your most requested procedures?
    Breast augmentations, Mommy Makeovers and Brazilian Butt Lifts (BBLs). While some procedures may be a fad, I encourage my patients to approach every procedure in the safest and most natural way possible. I employ the latest tools, techniques and devices, but my goal is to create a beautiful frame that will last the test of time
  7. My motto
    Work hard and love what you do—the rest will fall into place
  8. My dream innovation
    Adjustable breast implants for every occasion
  9. How i would spend extra time in a day
